AGENCY:

U.S. Department of Energy.

ACTION:

Notice.

SUMMARY:

As required by the Privacy Act of 1974, 5 U.S.C. 552a, and the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Circular A-130, the Department of Energy including the National Nuclear Security Agency (NNSA) (hereinafter referred to collectively as “DOE” or the Department”) is announcing the Department's intent to publish a proposed compilation of Privacy Act Systems of Records. This notice, which reflects various significant and administrative changes to the existing systems of records, proposes to: (1) Add a new routine use disclosure to all systems of records to allow disclosure of information in the event of a breach; (2) further amend three existing systems of records; (3) establish a new system of records; and (4) delete one system of records from the inventory of systems.

DATES:

Any interested person may submit written comments concerning the proposed changes to DOE's Privacy Act Systems of Records by April 2, 2008. Except for proposed exemptions that may require separate notice and comment rulemaking, the changes proposed in this notice will be effective April 2, 2008 unless DOE receives comments that require a contrary determination. DOE will publish a document in the Federal Register notifying the public if any changes are necessary.

ADDRESSES:

Written comments should be directed to Verlette L. Gatlin, Deputy Director, FOIA and Privacy Act Office, Office of Information Resources, U.S. Department of Energy, MA-90, 1000 Independence Avenue, SW., Washington, DC 20585, (202) 586-5955.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Background

II. Proposed Amendments to Existing Systems of Records

III. Establishment of a New System of Records

IV. Discussion of Deletion of System of Records Notice

V. Comment Procedures

I. Background

This notice provides an accurate and complete text for the sixty systems of records established by DOE under the Privacy Act. DOE published the last compilation of the Privacy Act systems of records at 68 FR 38756 on June 30, 2003. Since that time, DOE has published several notices to establish new systems of records and to amend published systems. It has been determined that this notice would be a more useful tool if all previously published notices are incorporated into one notice.

This notice will incorporate all published systems of records and identify the appropriate DOE locations. Each system notice provides a description of the system of records, identifies the purpose and authority for collecting and maintaining the information, reflects administrative changes, identifies the appropriate DOE locations, and incorporates all routine uses.

II. Proposed Amendments to Existing Systems of Records

DOE-24 Land Records System

The Department's Land Records are currently being maintained and used by the Bonneville Power Administration and the Western Area Power Administration. The records are used to track land rights information resulting from property right acquisitions, outgrants, licenses, transfers, exchanges, encroachments and disposals in support of construction and maintenance programs, right-of-way tracking for transmission line vegetation management and line maintenance.

This process will be utilized at the Southwestern Power Administration (Southwestern) in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Therefore, this notice proposes to amend the system by expanding the categories of individuals section, and adding an additional location. The categories of individuals section will be expanded to include landowners and tenants on Southwestern's right-of-way where Southwestern has acquired or given interests in land or permits for its hydro-electric transmission lines.

DOE-28 General Training Records

The General Training Records are maintained and used by the Department to document planning, completion, funding, and effectiveness of employee training and development. The system of records only covers DOE employees. This notice proposes to amend the categories of individuals section to include contractor employees who have taken and completed necessary training courses.

DOE-34 Employee Assistance Program (EAP) Records

This notice proposes to amend DOE-34 “Employee Assistance Program (EAP) Records.” The amendment will expand the categories of individuals section. The existing system only covers records of DOE employees seeking assistance with personal and work-related issues. The amendment will include contractor employees seeking assistance on personal and work-related issues.

Proposed Routine Use Provision

A new routine use provision is being proposed for all of the Department's published systems of records. The proposed routine use disclosure will help DOE facilitate the response to a breach of Federal data, including notifying impacted individuals. It also will allow DOE to disclose information about potentially affected individuals to other agencies and entities to facilitate a response to a breach of Federal data. The disclosure is compatible with the purpose for which the information is being collected and the disclosure of information would be in the best interest of both the individual to whom it pertains and the public.

III. Establishment of a New System of Records

The notice proposes to establish a new system of records entitled DOE-60 “General Correspondence Files.” The system covers individuals who have initiated correspondence with organizational elements of DOE. The records to be maintained in the system pertain to general correspondence submitted to the Heads of the Departmental Program Offices and the Heads of the Departmental Field Offices.

The categories of records to be covered by the system include incoming correspondence that may include name, address, telephone number, organization, date of birth, and supporting documentation. Files may also contain a copy of any response letters and documentation required to prepare the response. The authority for maintenance of the system is 42 U.S.C. 7101 et seq.; 50 U.S.C. 2401 et seq.

IV. Discussion of Deletion of System of Records

During the review process of the systems of records established by DOE under the Privacy Act, DOE identified Start Printed Page 18045one record system for deletion. The information collected and maintained in DOE-6 EIA “Consumer Data Base” is obsolete and is no longer being maintained. Therefore, this system of records will be deleted from the Department's inventory of systems of records.

V. Comment Procedures

As provided by 5 U.S.C. 552a(e)(11), interested persons are invited to submit written data, views, or comments related to the proposed amendment to an existing system of records and proposed establishment of a routine use. See ADDRESSES. “Comments” should be written on the outside of the envelope and on the documents submitted to DOE with the designation “Department of Energy Privacy Act Systems of Records Proposals.” These comments and all other relevant information will be considered by DOE before the various proposals are adopted in their final form.

If DOE receives no substantial comments adverse to or critical of the proposed establishment of a new system of records, the establishment of a new routine use that DOE proposes to establish in all of the adopted or proposed systems of record in the compilation, or the amendments to three previously published systems of records, DOE will begin to operate the systems as proposed upon the expiration of the 40-day advance period for informing Congress and OMB of the proposed amendments and the adoption of a new system of records as required by OMB Circular A-130.

The Department is submitting to Congress a report on the new system and the amendments to existing systems as required by OMB Circular A-130.

Set forth below is the compilation of DOE's Privacy Act Systems of Records that includes a Table of Contents, Correlation of Offices and the text of the individual systems of records.
